Hey, for those who have ridden EE, do you consider yourself a coaster enthusiast (or freak) or not?

I just want to see if my prediction (general public will love it, coaster fans will be underwhelmed) is coming to light this early in the ride's life.

^^^I'm sorry it ruined your day. Perhaps you were realy just upset the Broncos lost. (Ha Ha) Perhaps your lithium perscription ran out? I don't know. However I'm sure the ride is has more pep than your enthusiasm about it.

In other news. I am in full agreement with Robb about the ride vids. The people seemed so rushed to get their vid on line that they failed to put any sort of production value into them at all. My god! At the very least cover annoying banter with some sort of music bed. I fealt that half the time I was staring at an auto Iris trying to judge the light properly. Also, If your going to give me a POV, and only have one chance to get it. Go as wide as the camera can and turn off the auto focus. Whatever you do. Do not zoom in with the camera to accentuate speed, unless you know what your doing, and are trying to design a specific shot.

I get an idea of what the ride is like. But the videos so far are all just unedited crap.

The coaster videos are all bad. I mean even mine suck.

For those saying the ride is short. Believe me, weirdly enough it gets longer each time you ride it. i.e. it gets more satisfying.

Its a vekoma and it is rough btw. CS at DCA at opening was a lot smoother than this coaster.

I just dont get it...I havent read anywhere where these people are saying they are "professional videographers" and they have the best videos in the world. Im not trying to insult anyone or anything like that but everyone isnt going to run out and buy the top of the line camera equipment and lip stick cams to make the "best evar!!11!!" video out there. I appreciate these people for their effort to give someone like me a chance to check out the coaster and get a general idea of what to expect before I get a chance to experience it. I could see if these people were trying to make a profit off of their work then that would be different. Its a way to say someone's video sucked and it wasn't up to "your" expections so to speak but geesh its just a coaster video, its not a multimillion dollar blockbuster. So to the people who are providing the videos, I wanna say thanks for giving me the chance to see what the coaster is all about and your efforts as well as your videos are greatly appreciated.

What I'm seeing is websites boasting they have the "FIRST LOOK EXCLUSIVE" which, in MY mind says if you're going to boast about something, and spam it across every newsgroup you can find, back it up with something HOT!

That's such a misconception. You don't NEED a top of the line camera or lipstick camera to make a good video. Anyone that thinks they do doesn't know much about shooting video. Hell, most of the equipment we use is actually BOTTOM of the line cheap or even used stuff!

But you're right, Jarmor. The videos don't say they are "good", they just say they are "first."

So it's kind of like someone boasting about their pre-release copy of star wars on DVD, and it turns out to be some piece of s**t where someone snuck a camera in the theater and what you see is mostly the back of someones head and audio quality that rivals most telephone conversations.

I'll wait for the DVD release, thank you! ;)

Again, your comments just make me think that if this is "good enough" for the coaster community why bother putting the extra effort into something?
